Rural France at its best. In the Poitou-Charentes region of South West France, nestled in the heart of the Lakes of the High Charente, our Self catering holiday cottage is perfectly located for either the energetic or those seeking a get away from it all holiday.

Our Holiday Cottage or Gite as it is known in France is a two storey attached house (attached to the owners' house who live on site). We believe the cottage was the original dwelling and was built in the 1700's. Inside there are exposed Charente stone walls and huge oak beams. The cottage was newly renovated for 2013 and is fully equipped with satellite TV (Freesat), DVD/CD/MP3 player, Wi-Fi, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, gas hob and electric oven, microwave. There are 3 double bedrooms (sleeping a maximum of 6 people)(1 with King size 160cm bed, 1 with double 140cm bed and 1 with 2 x single beds) , a bathroom with bath and shower and a separate shower room. The lounge/dining area is open plan with a wood burning stove and fitted kitchen. Upstairs there is a further sitting area. Outside is a patio and a separate barbecue area. There is a large garden and a wild flower meadow, covering over 2 acres, that can be enjoyed by our guests. The lake can be seen from the property. Parking is available on site. There are 3 bicycles available for guest use.

The lakes of the High Charente are set in wonderful countryside and are much-visited by local people and tourists alike for their clear, cool waters, fishing, and water sports. At the Lac de Lavaud there are two sandy beaches with swimming and you can also go sailing, windsurfing or hire a canoe or kayak plus horse riding. Lac de Mas Chabin is quieter and boasts wonderful scenery, excellent fishing spots and numerous woodland trails for the nature enthusiast and this one is on your doorstep.

Lots of tourist attractions nearby from several Chateau, Roman ruins, Adventure Park, 2 golf courses, pretty villages and towns and many more.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

Lakes of the High Charente

The main area of lakes in the Poitou-Charentes is in the Charente-Limousine, and in particular the Lacs de Haute Charente. In terms of geography this part of the region has more in common with the Limousin - which it borders - than the rest of the Poitou-Charentes; these are the foothills of the Massif Central which reach their peak far to the east in the middle of the country. The lakes are set in wonderful countryside and are much-visited by local people and tourists alike for their clear, cool waters, fishing, and water sports. At the Lac de Lavaud there are two sandy beaches with swimming and you can also go sailing, windsurfing or hire a canoe or kayak. Lac de Mas Chabin is quieter and boasts wonderful scenary, excellent fishing spots and numerous woodland trails for the nature enthusiast.



The Charente is a department of the Poitou-Charentes region located in South West France.

The Holiday cottage is situated in an area of natural beauty with two lakes and an adventure park all within a few minutes of the house. It is an ideal area for people who like the outdoor life such as walking and cycling (with routes from the property), fishing, horse riding, water sports or bird watching. There are 2 Golf courses nearby It is also suitable for people who just want to relax. We are in a corner of the Charente that borders onto the Limousin and Dordogne.

We have our own tourist office with plenty of information on Leisure activities

"Great Location, Fabulous Facilities, Friendly welcome"

A charming charismatic property set in the most beautiful countryside imaginable. Tranquil and rural, but not too remote that it could offer plenty of activities for children of all ages, including teenage boys within about ten minutes drive. The property was large, impeccably clean and very well appointed. It had a wonderfuI garden that you could sit and read under the shade of a tree. If you had to stay indoors there were plenty of books, DVDs board games, Satellite Television and Wi-Fi. There is also a great selection of brochures for local attractions.
The Best holiday in France I have had

Thank you for your great feedback
